Arctic Facts
ARCTIC CIRCLE

The Arctic Circle is a very unique imaginary place on the globe. It is at this point, 66.5 degrees North where the sun never sets on the longest day of the year, usually June 21st. The same event happens during the winter, only the opposite, where the sun does not rise, usually Dec. 21st. The further north you travel from this line in the summer the more daylight you will encounter. For example our destination next year, Grise Fiord, which sits at approx. 76 degrees north, has 77 consecutive days of daylight and 77 days of darkness in winter.
